Access Fund still owns Golden Cliffs property; soon to be transferred to Jefferson County MORE INFO >>>
Stay tuned for an announcement of the transfer to the County, as well as an upcoming celebration at Golden Cliffs to commemorate the legacy of Mayford Peery, who donated the cliffs to the Access Fund in 1994. The event will celebrate 20 years of Access Fund ownership and officially present Golden Cliffs to Jefferson County Open Space.
Hike the main trail to the cliff. Look for a crack/corner system just right of the bolted prow of "Wholely Holy, Lord God Almight". With two possiblities at the start, select the nice-looking handcrack through a bulge on the right. Work up the steep corner above to the ledge atop the prow on the left. Set a directional piece (2"-2.5") to keep the rope hanging clean down the corner, clip the bolted anchor on the left, and lower off the left side of the prow. It only gets one star at the present time because of lichen and a couple of loosies that are easily bypassed. Otherwise, it is a nice crack that will take all the gear you can throw at it.
Addendum: one can also climb the bulging crack shown to the right of the climber at the start.
Gear, double 1" - 3" cams or hexes, two-bolt anchor on top of "Wholly Holely".
